Mindfulness A to Z
We hear about mindfulness a lot these days—it’s in the news, on the Internet, and even an app on your phone. There is no shortage of books, articles, and programs designed to reduce stress and help you to live in the present moment. Mindfulness can help you to become a better parent, a more productive employee, and even enhance your sex life.
Yet mindfulness has more to offer. A serious engagement with and commitment to mindfulness practices can help you to live an awakened life. In my book, Mindfulness A to Z: 108 Insights for Awakening Now, I’ve presented an alphabetized collection of mindfulness and Buddhist topics that can help you do just that. Many of the entries contain personal accounts of my attempts—some successful, some not—to be mindful. These stories are often humorous and always instructive. The brief entries are also practical with guidance for your mindfulness practice.
This gallery will define mindfulness and then explore seven key concepts with excerpts from Mindfulness A to Z.
